passenger lists Italy to Uk

Postby sharonboon » 20 Nov 2010, 16:49

Hi
Would anybody be able to advise where I could find these (if available)?
I'm looking for Jerome and Albertino Cavassi or Cavazzi about 1880's. I have them on the 1881 census as being visitors in London then they moved north to Newcastle upon Tyne and set up home.
I would really appreciate any info on their journey from Italy,
Thanks
Sharon.

If they arrived in the UK prior to 1878, there may not be any records available. See http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/reco ... -lists.htm

After 1878, the UK Archives points you to Ancestry . com, which has a single Cavazzi listing (for "Joseph") and none at all for Cavassi. Without an International plan on Ancestry, I cannot see the details of the Joseph Cavazzi record ( http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss ... x&uidh=000 ).

PS: For what it is worth, an "All Catagories" search at Ancestry . com turns up many Cavazzi records, including census and death indexes for your ancestors. http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss ... i&uidh=000

Thanks for the info. I have .com and Joseph is not mine :-( he was about 25 years out date wise. I'll check the national archives just incase they came earlier than I thought.
Thanks again
Sharon
